From the moment you step into this property, you'll be amazed at how you have left the city behind to find an oasis of calm and safety.

Living areas look out to a lovely cottage garden, dappled sunlight falling on grass and brick pathways beyond the Oamaru stone -enclosed courtyard.

This property is perfectly located for a stay in Christchurch, whether you are just passing through on holiday or coming for that special event: concert at the Arena, sports fixtures at the cricket and rugby stadia, Arts Festivals or NZ Cup Week.

The Merivale location means you're only minutes away from that food and fashion precinct; and if you've come to town to see the kids during the school term you are right on the doorstep for all the private schools.

Maybe you need some accommodation whilst you seek something more permanent as you relocate to the city? This property gives you everything you need as you find your feet: broadband connectivity, Smart TV (e.g. Netflix), and landline.

Hagley Park is one of the great assets of the city: join the locals and appreciate the perfect, safe jogging circuits, have a round at the Hagley Golf Club, or get some tennis in either at the courts in North Hagley or the Hagley Tennis Club itself.

Although I prefer 2 day bookings, I will take single night bookings at $220 for up to a group of 4 (with $50 per extra adult and $25 per extra child, per night). Make an enquiry for a speedy response.

Special conditions:

Two night stay preferred but single night stays available from $220/night (4 adults). Extra adults $25; extra children $20

The stairs are quaint but steep: therefore might not be suited for the less mobile and children under 5 years old. However stair gate is available and easily installed if required.

Portacot and highchair available

Smoking outside only please.

No pets thank you.

    This home is decorated in an extravagant style ( gold-plated taps!) that is very engaging.It is large, really well equipped, close to the city and very quiet. The owner gave clear instructions and was easy to deal with.

    Very beautiful and charming house! Great location, within walking distance to cafes, shops and the botanic gardens. The only thing I can fault is the water pressure in the shower.

  • This a wonderful property

    This a wonderful property. Located super centrally by Hagely Park. We loved the eclectic decor and the beds were super comfortable. Lovely and toasty even in below zero temperatures. We hope to stay again!
